John Longmire sons in Swans Academy
Sydney eyes off sons of North Melbourne greats John Longmire, John Blakey

The three boys can be groomed for careers at the Swans, the club Longmire coaches with Blakey his assistant.
The academies afforded to the four northern clubs came under siege last year with Collingwood president Eddie McGuire saying they could “go and get players and hide them away and train them from 12 years of age”.
If they make the grade, the Sydney trio could graduate from the Swans academy onto its senior list — or choose to join North as father-son selections.
Nicholas Blakey (in the under-15s), Thomas Longmire (12) and Billy Longmire (10) flirted with North’s father-son academy in 2013, but haven’t been involved since.


Thomas Longmire now ~16 years yesterday

Also perhaps add John's son Billy ~ 14 and daughter Sahara ~ 12 years old

'mini' magic
The son of Sydney Swans great Michael O’Loughlin is in the thick of “a mini AFL experience” and has a burning desire to one day follow his dad onto the biggest stage of all.
James O’Loughlin was one of 23 prodigiously talented under-12 schoolboys selected for the NSW Primary School Sports Association (PSSA) team for the 2019 Australian Football Championships.
